The idea of beauty sleep isn’t just an urban legend, there is now actual research to back up the benefits of sleep and how it can change the way you look.

Dewy Cel Eye Plus Cream Review

18th June 2019

DewyCel Eye Plus Cream | Jade of Trades

I scream for… eye cream! Are you laughing? That’s okay, I wasn’t either. DewyCel was so kind to send me not one but TWO eye creams to try out. I’ve been using it for weeks now, and I love love LOVE this eye cream! I’ll be honest and admit that I haven’t tried too many before — as a 22 year old gal, the skin around my eyes hasn’t worried me just yet. But, I know that prevention is great for preserving that area, so I’m glad I finally have one that I reach for daily.

Summer CauseBox 2019

12th June 2019

 

Summer CauseBox

My first CauseBox came in the mail! Are y’all fans of the subscription-based services happening nowadays across beauty and fashion brands? I personally think it’s so much fun! I’m so guilty of repurchasing the same things over and over again, not because I love them, but because I’m comfortable with them. As an (upcoming) law student, I don’t have a ton of money to splurge on products I may or may not like. That’s why subscription boxes are a great alternative; these products are curated by stylists and industry professionals.

You guys know I’m such a fan of brands and products that are made mindfully, meaning that they are either fair trade or artisan trade and empower the lives of those who make them instead of perpetuating poverty. So, when CauseBox reached out to me to send me their summer box, I was super excited. My love for subscription boxes combined with ethically and sustainably made items is my dream come true.

Aluminum-Free Deodorant // Native

3rd June 2019

Native Deodorant

I’ve been wanting to make the switch to a more natural deodorant for years now. Previously, I was just using Secret or really, whatever I could find. I’ve never had the same problems that others have had when it comes down to finding a product that works for me, so I’m not too picky about it. However, I really did want something that is aluminum and paraben free.

First FabFitFun Box

27th May 2019

FabFitFun

Over this past weekend, I received my very first FabFitFun box! They were kind enough to send one to me and oh my goodness, it was so much fun to open up the box without knowing what was inside. I love to try new products, but sometimes I’m quite hesitant to invest my money in a new product rather than sticking to tried and true products I know I love. So, this is a great option to try out products I wouldn’t normally ever go out and buy on my own! I’ve had the opportunity to try most of these and they are amazing. Ah, so happy!
